Blogger's Challenge Friday #6

I know I've missed the last two, but my schedule is back to normal now and I am super excited about this challenge. We were supposed to use the layout on page 165 of the Fall/Winter Collection as our starting point.

I wasn't feeling like flowers, so I pulled out my Booglie Eyes stamp set. Even though I'm not much of a Halloween girl, this set cracks me up. I stamped the spider and mummy in Palette Noir ink on whisper white card stock. I watercolored the spider by scribbling a Basic Black marker on a stamp case and then picking up the ink with my aquapainter. This is a great trick since the Basic Black ink pad is waterproof. I did the same thing with the mummy, but I used the Going Gray marker instead. I just wanted to give his rags a little shadow. As if that weren't enough, I came back with my Stardust Sakura pen and added some glitter highlights.

The pumpkin pie circle was punched with a Marvy Mega Scalloped Circle punch and the smaller vintage violet one was punched with the Marvy Super Jumbo Scalloped Circle punch. I then cut my booglie guys out with the Coluzzle to fit inside the scalloped circles. The circles are both popped up with dimensionals.

I haven't gotten any of the new wide grosgrain ribbon yet, so I settled on the now retired wide organdy ribbon instead. I also used last year's Halloween paper since I still have a lot left.
